Beginning Monday, May 18, businesses that are located along the Central Business Corridor, on or adjacent to Ringgold Road, can apply for grant funds. If approved, funds may be used to update storefronts, signage and parking areas, which are among the potential projects available to eligible applicants if approved for a grant project.
The City’s objective in providing grant funds to eligible East Ridge businesses is to improve the look and feel for citizens, businesses, and visitors as well as to attract shoppers to East Ridge businesses by improving the city’s Central Business Corridor.
City-approved grant projects are reimbursable for half of the project cost up to $10,000 from the City, or a $20,000 total project cost, a dollar for dollar match. Projects may be completed in phases.
Applications will be available at City Hall or on the City’s website at http://www.eastridgetn.org/
